One More Week!!!

I can't believe it is already here. Next week, we will have a little girl in our arms...We can't wait! We are so excited and a little nervous at the same time. We went to the doctor today. He said that she is weighing in around 7.5 lbs right now. She is already bigger than her cousin Thomas! He said everything was looking good. We are just hoping her shoulders aren't too big from the diabetes, if they are then I will end up having to have a C-section, but we won't know until that day. We had to switch the induction date to the 22nd because he had a surgery on the 21st. Which was fine with us because the 22nd is my father-n-laws birthday. We will go see the doctor Monday morning to learn everything we need to do for the big day and then we go check into the hospital Tuesday at 6am. This is all if she doesn't come earlier,which would also be fine with me. I'm starting to get very uncomfortable, but just have to keep thinking only one more week!!!

Crossen's Nursery

My Aunt Cindy, mom and mother-n-law came over last week to decorate my nursery. They did an awesome job... I love it! My Aunt Cindy is wonderful at decorating and I really appreciate everything she did for me. Crossen is one lucky girl! The only two things we are still waiting on are the slip covers for the rocker and a side table for it too. We just put a side table that we had in the house there for now but Cindy found one that will go perfect.

36 Weeks

Any Day Now or 20 Days

I went to the doctor yesterday for my weekly checkup. He is still concerned about my diabetes so he would like to induce me a little early. Good news though is that he doesn't think I will be having any 9 lb baby. We set up a day! So I will be induced on Sept. 21. Then he decided to check my cervix. Aaron and I didn't like the face he made. He looked shocked! I asked him why he was making that face and he said that he just wasn't expecting me to already be dilated and effaced for it being my first baby. I am 1 cm dilated and 70% effaced. He said he could already feel her head and that I would definitely not make it to my due date. So it could be any day now or a couple of more weeks! Let's hope a couple of more weeks. I have so much to do to get everything ready!

Thomas Barnes Sproull

Two weeks ago, my sister found out that her amniotic fluid was too low and she had to be induced early. Well, it worked out perfect for me because if she would have waited until her due date I would not have been able to fly out to see her. And now that she was having her baby earlier than I thought, I was able to fly out to Texas and surprise her. I am so glad I went, not only did I get to spend a week with my new nephew Thomas but I also got to see exactly what I am going to be doing in 3 weeks. And I think Sarah was very surprised to see me! Now the hard part is knowing that I won't see them again until Thanksgiving.

Crossen is Famous!

I had a doctor's appointment yesterday afternoon. I am usually only at the doctors for about 3o minutes but yesterday I was there for 2 1/2 hours. My doctor was shooting a commercial for his practice and asked me to be his ob patient. It was great because he did an extra long ultrasound for the cameras and then did an ultrasound just for me after the camera crew left. I also found out that I am not meant to be an actress. They never told me that I was going to have to answer questions on camera, so I was not prepared at all. It didn't help either that the whole camera crew didn't speak English and they were trying to have me answer questions that didn't make sense to me. I think they just went online and did the Spanish to English conversion but it didn't come out right. So hopefully they will cut my interview part out of the commercial and only use the ultrasound part where I am not talking. Also, they only gave me one shot and didn't let me have any re dos. It was crazy! It will only be on local channels, but I will definitely have to tape it.
During my ultrasound, the doctor did all the measurements to see how big Crossen is. She is weighing in at 4lbs 10oz, which means she is in the 48%. He said I am doing good with the diet. The only complaint he had was that I need to drink more fluids. He said that my body is using extra fluid to try and balance my blood sugar out so I need to drink a lot more than I usually do. I will start going to the doctor every two weeks now.
